Update:

Special Olympics does not accept Rahm Emmanuel’s apology for calling someone else effin’ ‘tards.  In response Special Olympics spokesman little Eric Cartman from South Park, Colorado, has a message for Rahm.

Spokesperson Eric Cartman sez "We don't f-ing accept your apology, Rahm."

Yes, I know some of you have retarded friends or family.  So do I.  Retarded folks aren’t the target here – Rahm is.  The episode in question is found here.

Even while they can’t control their own mouths they want to control everyone else’s…

The president’s advice came in answer to a question from Sen. Mike Bennet, D-CO, who is facing a difficult re-election fight back home and wanted to know what Democrats and Republicans can do “to fix this institution so that our democracy can actually withstand the test that we’re facing right now.”

“You know what I think would actually make a difference, Michael? I think if everybody here — excuse all the members of the press who are here — if everybody here turned off your CNN, your Fox, your blogs,” Obama said, before being interrupted by Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-CA, who piped up, “And MSNBC!”

A quick update/detour…

This isn’t news.  Obama advisor Eliseo Medina:

Granting citizenship to millions of illegal immigrants would expand the “progressive” electorate and help ensure a “progressive” governing coalition for the long term, declared a recent adviser to President Obama whose union group is among the most frequent visitors to the White House.

Come on, WND – seems to me that this is pretty obvious stuff.
Let’s take a poll.

Note: Aggie Sith is right… this is a conflicted poll. I’m not experienced at it yet. Answer whichever one most feels like “you”. If you answer “dead patriotic” it means that yes you saw it coming and you aren’t happy – not happy at all.

****NOW ON TO THE ORIGINAL POST FOR TODAY****
On Drudge…

CBSNEWS anchorwoman and 60 MINUTES contributor Katie Couric faces a dramatic pay cut at the network...[snip]

Couric, the highest paid TV news personality in history, commands over $14 million a year...[snip]...a populist backlash against Couric's cash is said to be forming inside the newsroom.

"She makes enough to pay 200 news reporters $75,000 a year!" demands a veteran producer. [snip] The angry source continues: "We report with great enthusiasm how much bankers are making, how it is out of step with reality during a recession. Well, look at Katie!"

Just last night I was watching South Park’s More Crap episode.  Every 2-1/2 of crap in one “load” is one unit in the measurement scale for such things.  Guess what the measurement unit is?  Not pounds, kilos, or anything like that.

1 Katie Couric = 2.5 lbs of crap

Yes, a 10lb pile of crap is 4 Katie Courics.

Later in that piece…  Surely Godfather, you will help us in our time of need after all these years we have been loyal to you…


EDITOR'S NOTE: Former CBS News anchor Dan Rather called on President Barack Obama to form a White House commission to help save the press. Tears welled in the lifelong reporter’s eyes as he discussed the dwindling number of war correspondents.

Added some color.  Some swooshy.  Used colors from the grand old “Hope” poster.  Washed ’em out.  Seemed fitting.

Thanks to iamfelix for the link to iowahawk, where Obama talks about ‘tards.   (this is satire, folks)

The O-Messiah shows that yet again without his prompter he is incapable of speaking things that reek of intelligence.

Obama Apologizes for Calling His Bad Bowling ‘Like the Special Olympics’

My personal feelings?  I’m glad you asked.  Frankly I think it is a non-issue when 90% of the people out on the streets have probably said something at some point in their lives that used “special olympics” to make a joke.

An entire episode of Seinfeld was at the expense of the handicapped.  Ditto South Park.

Get.  Over.  It.  Just stop being (1) so overly-sensitive, and (2) hypocritical.

Where I choose to criticize Obama is that a supposed “cut-above” individual (I want my president to be a six-σ kind of guy, sorry) ought to be able to police his mind/thoughts enough to realize when he’s speaking that what is about to come out his mouth next is probably not a good idea.  If he’s that incapable of thinking quickly on his feet, we have a problem.

You could say that verbally-speaking the man is unsteady enough on his feet to need double-wide shoes.

Way way back in the mists of time (last summer) I pondered about what might be the result of Iran blockading the Strait of Hormuz as a retaliation against the US should we attack their nuke facility.

Strait of Hormuz

Well, isn’t this just something very nearing irony?  (but still not quite)

MANAMA, Bahrain

Two U.S. Navy vessels — a nuclear-powered submarine and an amphibious ship — collided before dawn Friday in the mouth of the Persian Gulf, one of the world’s most important sea passages for oil supplies.

I’d be willing to bet that things got really exciting immediately following the collision as both craft went to high alert.

Thankfully nuke material was not released or we’d be paying $250 a barrel for oil for quite some time and Obama’s ridiculously rosy projection for the economy would look really stupid.

This is days old, but apparently people exercising their free speech are hurting people’s feelings and endangering the very future of their city.

SALISBURY — In her final State of the City address, Salisbury Mayor Barrie Parsons Tilghman warned residents of what she sees as a great danger to the city: malicious bloggers.

Where did we get all these people who grew up in such sterile environments that they cannot handle criticism of any kind?  The ratio of spinless organisms to vertebrates seems awfully high.
